Nail Team Challenge - Water decals

I can not believe how time flies. We arrived at challenge day number 11 and this time we have a very easy theme by Deyutza, water decals. I've had some untried decals that I've won from the Born Pretty Store last year and this was the opportunity to bring it out to the light.

I've used a wonderful pink polish from Golden Rose Matte Nail Lacquer #01 to cheer up this manicure. And because the decals were not enough for both hands, my right hand was painted just with this fantastic color.
And here are the pretty flower decals that are perfect for this period of time. These decals are quite interesting ones because they have a sticky surface and instead of dipping the decal in water to remove the film, this alternative involves sponging the decal over the nails. Hard to describe the process, but I will try it.

As you can see in the picture below the decal is very small, it's not enough to cover 10 nails. These are OK for accent nails.
I painted a white base for the decals and after drying I place the cut out decal on the nail with the stick side facing down. This ensured the decal to sit in place, but if the placement is not the right one you can still lift and adjust it as you wish. On one of my nails the polish was not totally dry and I messed up the base, so watch out for this detail if you use such kind of decals. 

I used a wet brush that I dabbed over the white backing of the decal until the pattern completely loosened from the paper. I finished it with a clear top coat, before I added a few glitter details.



I have to mention that I prefer to use the usual water decals, not the sticky ones, but I've enjoyed to experiment with these ones too. You can find these sticker decals here. If you purchase something from this site, you're welcome to use my below seen discount code. 


Let's see what kind of interesting decals the other girls from the group have on their nails:

  26. Thank you very much, coming from such a talented artist like you, means extremely lot to me!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yes, you should :) I was against decals first but than I realized that if I need a quick mani decals are the best for it!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ma bucur ca iti place manichiura mea. Mare lucru nu am facut, doar multumita decalului arata astfel! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Multumesc. Da, oja GR, o am de multa vreme si imi place extrem de mult. Mie mila sa o arunc :)

  30. Thank you very much dear, your very kind!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Igen, több mintát lehet kapni a BPS oldalán, de öszintén a ragacsos oldala miatt nem szeretem annyira használni. A klasszikus water decal mégis jobb.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thank you very much, your super sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thank you very much my friend. Yes, I agree the GR polish is a very pretty one!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Vai, iti multumesc din suflet pentru complimente, apreciez cuvintele tale!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Multumesc. Da, sunt de acord cu tine, varianta clasica este mult mai usor de utilizat!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Vai Teo, te pup, esti o draguta. Ma bucur mult de tot ca iti place acest model!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thank you very much dear for the kind words. Well, the half image was a must because this decal is so small and I had to come up with an idea! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I was against decals, but now I like to use them too!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yes, they are unfortunately very small. They are not enough for 10 nails.:(

    ReplyDelete
  40. Iti multumec mult, ma bucur ca iti place.
    Da, exact la fel se aplica, doar diferenta intre tatuaje si aceste decaluri sunt ca au o suprafata lipicioasa si o data puse pe unghii se lipesc. Dat fiind faptul ca decalurile sunt pe un carton alb, destul de gros, nu se poate observa daca sunt bine pozitionate pe suprafata unghiei. O data aplicata pe carton apa, imaginea se lipeste in totalitate pe unghie si nu se mai poate misca, ca si la decalul obisnuit. Na, este greu de explicat, sper ca ai inteles si iti poti imagina cum functioneaza.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Multumesc mult. Da, oja roz este extrem de frumoasa!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Da, aceste decaluri chiar au fost interesante, dar sincer sa fiu nu o sa mai cumpar!
